So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Tonight we had a lovely banquet for the conference. We were led down to dinner by a colonial band playing drums and fifes. We had a traditional dinner consisting of peanut soup and pork and fried chicken and corn meal balls and corn bread and Williamsburg salad and pumpkin pie pudding and sour cherry trifle.

The one weird part was that while our hosts were colonially-garbed white people, and our entertainment was colonially-garbed white people, and our conference was about 95% white people (with the balance in asians and one African guy), our servers were 100% black people, dressed in 1700s black-people garb. I mean, not "fancy dress and bonnet" colonial garb, but like authentic late 1700s black-people garb. It was more than a little strange and uncomfortable.

We also had 4 vegetarians at our table, which is just awkward in itself.

I guess they really want to be authentic... can't say it's the best way to go, though.

Peanut soup sounds.... interesting...

Pumpkin pie pudding?? *drools* Yes. The stigma hurts.

...eh, sensitive to socio-economic trends of that specific time period? That IS awkward.
